Could be the model 87. A Queen Air with PT6s. According to wiki, the model 87 was a proof of concept and never went into production.

I believe that's the answer, as looking through the database, the only King Airs that look anything like this are the Model 65-90A-1/2/3/4s that were based on the Model 87 and were built for the US Army (U-21 Ute). All other King Airs have the rounded windows.

According to "Beechcraft: Fifty Years of Excellence" (published in 1982), a wind tunnel model of the Model 120 was shown at the 1962 Beech distributor's meeting (held in December 1961). It was a eight- to ten-place, pressurized, 300-mph executive transport. The next, year a full-size mockup was shown at the distributor's meeting. The book says that in the end, management concluded that it would take too long and cost too much to develop the Model 120, so the King Air 90 was developed instead. That picture must have been taken at the 1963 distributors meeting (held in December 1962).
On a separate note, Cessna did fly this aircraft, although there are no pictures in the public domain:
